Radiofrequency ablation treatment (Vnus Closure), also known as Venefit, is a revolutionary procedure for treating varicose veins.

This minimally-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency energy to collapse diseased veins so they eventually disappear completely. Radiofrequency ablation is available at Vein Specialists of the Carolinas and there are a number of good reasons you should consider this vein treatment for your vein disorder.

Outpatient Procedure
VNUS Closure is performed on an outpatient basis and usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete. This means you can schedule your procedure any time, without concern over taking a substantial amount of time off work or preparing for an overnight hospital visit. Our office at Vein Specialists of the Carolinas is comfortable and professional, ensuring you enjoy a positive experience throughout your brief visit.

No Incisions
Radiofrequency energy is delivered to the vessel via a narrow tube called a catheter. A micro-incision, not much bigger than a needle stick, is used to insert the catheter directly into the vein. Without any large incisions involved, you don’t have to worry about sutures or post-procedural scarring to mar your positive results.

No Discomfort
Unlike invasive, painful surgical procedures of the past, VNUS Closure involves very little discomfort during or after the procedure once the numbing is complete. Treatment is performed under local anesthesia and most patients can manage post-procedural discomfort sufficiently with over-the-counter pain medication. In some studies, VNUS was determined to be even less painful than other minimally-invasive vein treatments like laser ablation.

Minimal Downtime
Without the need for general anesthesia or significant incisions, recovery from VNUS Closure is also minimal. Patients typically walk out of our office after the procedure and return home for the rest of the day. The large majority return to work and other regular activities the next day. If you experience uncomfortable symptoms prior to your treatment, you may notice improvement in your discomfort within a day or two as well.

Highly Effective
Clinical studies on radiofrequency ablation have found the procedure to be more than 96-percent effective in eliminating varicose veins and their symptoms. The long-term results of the procedure have been equally positive, with recurrence rates similar to other vein procedures today. Patient satisfaction rates are very high, in terms of the procedure itself, recovery and long-term results.

The staff at Vein Specialists of the Carolinas is proud to offer VNUS Closure as one option in effective vein treatment.
